Show Notes

Merry Toymas! (Shelfmas is also acceptable). This year we spend the holiday discussing more of our favorite show, The Toys That Made Us (on Netflix). For the price of one podcast you get TWO TTMU episodes and TWO actual child guests! That's right, Adam's boys Izaak and Landen are joining us because we needed a children's perspective on POWER RANGERS and MY LITTLE PONY. The boys waste no time in roasting their Dad (like he was some chestnuts on an open fire) and discussing Christmas cheer in dollar amounts. Who will spend the most and win their love? Listen and find out. We all talk about the Power Rangers of Toymases past and hammer out the official cult rules of Toymas. Additional bullet points: -Landen spills the tea -Anti-Escalation Rangers -Bandai's very good sidewalk chalk -Me and the boys at 3am comin out the crayon box -Bronies -Little Girls Aren't Like YOU -CHARMKINS (my god we spend soooo much time discussing Charmkins, we even re-tool the jingle) -Equestria Girls -Feed the Beast -If male seahorses give birth, and there are no male sea ponies, how is new seapony made>?>??? -Horse penis! Special Christmas theme music by Josh Head, Matt Taylor, Blake Walker, and Logan Williams AKA moreofthat.bandcamp.com Shelf Life is brought to you by AUX Audio Enterprises.

Hey it's somewhere near our two-year anniversary of the podcast and we forgot to mention that--but have a cool new episode anyway!

Review of Worthy Captain America. Hasbro crowdfunded Cookie Monster and other life-size muppets. Speaking of muppets, are they a "huge turn-off"? Conan O'Brien "legally" marries his Funko Pop!s. Which toy would you marry? GLOW IN THE DARK figures! Including MOTU's Scareglow, Swamp Thing, Ghostbusters, Homer Simpson, and more! Mini Brands Chase Pez. WHAT WAS YOUR WOODY? Crash Test Dummies and Boom, My Forever Pal. Blake surprises Adam with an insane purchase of Funko's DC Primal Age Batcave and figures to boot. Or is it Savage World? Hard to say. Don't toy shop drunk. And finally, BLAKE BUYS A TOY LIVE ON AIR! ...

!WOOP! !WOOP! Trekkers only on this episode! Trekkies get lost! And Star Warsies can straight up fuhgeddaboutit (Gotti). This time we dissect an episode of Netflix's THE TOYS THAT MADE US that constantly reminds us it's not Star Wars. We're joined by resident Trek Expert (Trexpert) MATT TAYLOR who is also in Blake's band! Matt's not as much of a pathetic toi boi as we are so we gotta toysplain a lotta shit. Luckily he had plenty of childhood experience making grocery bag parachutes for GI Joes, which Blake didn't know was a thing. We talk about the episode and our experience with Star Trek--toys, shows, and movies--and do a bunch of goofs and horseshit too. Also: Label-slapping. verb. A phrase we repeat way too often. Arkham Asylum, Toy Manufacturer. The thrill of the flea market hunt. Playmates, Diamond Select, Art Asylum, McFarlane Toys, Lego, Kre-o, Mega Construx. I'M A TOY VANDAL BABY, I FUX WITH TOYS!

3. Custom Betty Boop

The boys delve into action figure customizing but get sidetracked by 1940s sex symbol Betty Boop's enormous and unwieldy head. Funko is shat upon. Sage customs advice is given out like candy. So lap it up, nerds. Music: "I Like My Toys" by The Idle Race ...
